Obituary

Laura Lee Cruickshank Skidmore Coveney was born on March 24, 1956 in Detroit Michigan,  passed away after a valiant fight with cancer on February 21, 2024 in Apopka Florida.

Laura is survived by her husband Paul Coveney, her brother Scott (Kim) Cruickshank, her sister Kim Lynch (Roger),  2 nieces , 3 nephews, her great nephew and her much loved doggie Roxy.  She is preceded in death by her parents and sister Diane.  Laura had a zest for life.  She loved sunshine and the beach with blue skies and sunny days.  When not at the beach she enjoyed her porch and pool.  She looked forward to fall and Halloween decorating along with NASCAR racing and watching FSU football.  Christmas time meant decorating with Santa.  She enjoyed entertaining and being with her friends who were like family to her.  Laura loved boxer dogs.  Roxy was her 4th  and brought her much joy.  She shared her Boxer passion with others and participated in many online Boxer groups.  She is dearly loved and will be missed by her family and many friends.  A celebration of her life will be on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at the VFW, 4444 Edgewater Drive, Orlando, FL 32804 from 1 to 5.  Laura loved the color blue,  if you would like, wear blue in her honor.  The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations to be made to the American Cancer Society in her memory.

    We didn’t see Laura often but over the course of 18 years when we did see her, it was always on the water and always happy times. Fly high Laura. Prayers for Paul and Roxy and all her family and friends to be comforted in His peace during these times.

    I have so many incredible memories of my aunt Laura from listening to Brooks and Dunn at the then BT Bones to cooking salmon on her grill for family. She was a true mermaid, the epitome of summer, and always brought the fun and sunshine. She was truly loved and will be missed. Sending so much love to her family.

    My aunt Laura was truly full of life and always tried to bring everyone together. I will forever love her for bringing out my passion for cooking and country music. There aren't enough words to describe the vivacious personality. Sending so much love to her family.
